We love this little restaurant. It is always busy so best to book in advance. The staff are friendly and very helpful. It is also very good value.

This is a fabulous little restaurant with friendly, attentive staff and great food. It's very popular and not huge so you have to book in advance, especially if you are in a large party. Good vegetarian selection.

This is a great restaurant. It is not to big so it seems always to be full and the atmosphere is great. The menu is varied and the food very good. Worth a trip.

We went to L'Italiana for a family celebration 3 or 4 months ago. The food, service and atmosphere were all top notch. This is a better Italian restaurant than most of the chains.The only caveat is you sometimes cannot use credit cards as their machines don't work.

We love this restaurant and the very good quality food they serve. The staff are nice and friendly but not so accommodating when it comes to bookings. You need to book well in advance as they aren't flexible with their slots and seating. I would have given 5 stars if only they were more flexible and willing to accommodate.

Had a fabulous dinner here on a Saturday evening. Small restaurant but really nice atmosphere when it's full. We shared a pizza and pasta and can genuinely say it's the best Italian I've been to in years. It is extremely reasonably priced. In total we spent 30£ on dinner for two with a couple of drinks. Would highly recommend for... More

£5.95 for any pizza or pasta from the menu - bargain. My calzone was enormous and our experience was enhanced by the lovely elderly coupe at the next table enquiring if it was a giant pasty!! My companion had a steaming pasta dish with a most generous helping of parmesan and she declared it delicious.

Never fails to impress, my good lady prefers the seafood Tricolor dish, salmon,prawns,avocado and so beautiful. Being a geezer I took on the Americano pizza. Both for a total of under £20 before drinks. Quality and the service is excellent....make a booking but leave a table for me!
